Home So Far Away

Home So Far Away - Judith Berlowitz

Home So Far Away


A fictional diary set in interwar Germany and Spain allows us to peek into the life of Klara Philipsborn, the only Communist in her merchant-class, German-Jewish family.


Klara's first visit to Seville in 1925 opens her eyes and her spirit to an era in which Spain's major religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, shared deep cultural connections.

At the same time, she is made aware of the harsh injustices that persist in Spanish society. By 1930, she has landed a position with the medical school in Madrid. Though she feels compelled to hide her Jewish identity in her predominantly Christian new home, she finds that she feels less "different" in Spain than she did in Germany, especially as she learns new ways of expressing her opinions and desires. And when the Spanish Civil War erupts in 1936, Klara (now "Clara") enlists in the Fifth Regiment, a step that transports her across the geography of the embattled peninsula and ultimately endangers a promising relationship and even Clara's life itself.



A blending of thoroughly researched history and engrossing fiction, Home So Far Away is an epic tale that will sweep readers away.
